Introducing the Cleary Family Museum!

We are a little geeky about history in our household, and this has led us to collect all kinds of things...which have been slowly forming into something of a museum! It's a mix-up of natural history and all sorts of bits and bobs

 fossils * crystals * shells* beach finds * pottery fragmanets dug up from our garden * glass bottles * insects* owl pellets* an old camera * some old binoculars * a viewmaster plus lots of reels * coins * bones * a tiny lead soldier on his horse from our garden * a cameo bust also dug up from our garden * a really old hand-made shoe found in an abandoned house in a forest in poland * a first aid box from ww2 * replica artefacts from museums / horrible histories live theatre shows * set of original newspapers from famous dates in history * old magazines from the 1960's * metallic objects * an old grain shovel that we found and cleaned up

I am a total total history geek!

Did I ever tell you that we collect postcards and stamps too? 

That will have to wait for another post.

What do you like to collect?


  1. That is seriously cool! I wish I had the room for such a magnificent display.
    We are history geeks here too, can't get enough!
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  2. Love these images x great displays.
    At the moment my only answer is children!! As number 4 gets ready to land earthside when spring is more definitely here. I'm sure there's other stuff but at the moment, this is where I sense the collection!
